Though many fro-yo shops have sprung up in recent years, TCBY is no newcomer to the scene. Since 1981, its shops have been scooping, swirling, and topping their lower-fat treat in crunchy candy and fruity sprinkles—but that doesn't mean they've been coasting. They're still innovating, whether it's tweaking standby flavors or developing their signature honey-vanilla Greek frozen yogurt that dishes out protein and fiber without any fat. Fro-yo artisans blend up Beriyo smoothies in flavors such as mangolada and purely peach or infuse Shivers with a choice of sweet topping options. To celebrate a birthday, you can opt for frozen yogurt cakes and pies. The treats are layered with frozen yogurt and rich toppings to forge flavors such as chocolate decadence and peanut-buttery fudge pie.
If you've ever had a grilled cheese that wasn't "cheesy" enough, you probably didn't get it from Aces Haus Of Cuisine. The grilled cheese sandwich there melts together cheddar, swiss, and american cheese inside two pieces of parmesan-grilled texas toast. The dish even includes a side of cheese dipping sauce for good measure.
The ultra cheese sandwich is just one of the American dishes on Aces' extensive menu. The kitchen also serves up classic German dishes such as sauerbraten pot roast with housemade dumplings, locally sourced sausage wrapped in a pretzel bun, and housemade German chocolate cake. Aces caters to vegetarians, as well, with such entrees as The Turn?grilled texas toast smothered in avocado-artichoke dip, corn, and black beans.
Upholding a tradition of adroit sandwich crafting since 1987, the staff at Brown Baggers assembles hearty customizable sandwiches on house-made bread. Patrons mix and match nine meats, seven cheeses, and 16 toppings, with foundations such as roast beef, bacon, and genoa salami supporting the likes of provolone cheese, dill dressing, and banana peppers. The eatery's catering service zips dozen-sandwich platters and trays of two dozen cookies to meetings, parties, or sandwich-burning protests. Soirees can also be hosted at the restaurant's 84th Street location, which houses a 20-person conference room ideal for sharing slideshow presentations or video of the boss’s most recent DIY drywall installation.
Goodcents champions customization, spreading build-your-own sandwich and pasta creations throughout the Great Plains and beyond. At each location, sandwich-stackers pile fresh-baked white or wheat bread with sliced-to-order meats such as pepperoni, salami, capicola, and roast beef. American, provolone, and pepper jack cheeses tuck in the fillings, keeping them warm and providing a blanket to hide under if the boogeyman comes. Then, more than 20 deli toppings, including pickles, peppers, spicy mustard, and vinegar, finish off the creation. Customers can also decide between pasta entrees, each tossed with meatballs or chicken and tomato marinara or cheese-based alfredo sauce.
